Discussion Post: Renaming Songs by Olivia Rodrigo using Book Titles

‘Cuz you said forever, now I drive alone past your street. *dies of heartbreak*

What a cheerful way to start a blog post! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hey Pals!! So recently, I posted a blog where I chose some book titles that would make cool band names, and that post was quite a hit, so I decided to do something else that includes both songs and books! That post was inspired by Ashmita @ the fictional journal‘s post- characters who would most likely vibe with ts, and this post is inspired by the band post, so it’s technically inspired by Ashmita’s post…and I sincerely hope that this did NOT make sense at all. So basically, I’ll be renaming songs from Sour album by Olivia Rodrigo based on book titles (not plots, titles). I hope you enjoy. Let’s start!!

Note: This is a discussion post, so feel free to share your views in the comments. Also, I’m not going to be mentioning the authors of these books. I tried doing that, but it took the feel away. I know it doesn’t make sense, but once you read the post…well, it still won’t make sense, so let’s just ignore me and move on.


brutal- Dear Life, You Suck

Don’t worry, even I hadn’t heard of this book until I specifically searched up the word “suck” on GoodReads, so yeah, just in case you thought I’m a very productive person, I am glad to prove you wrong ๐Ÿ™‚. This song is about Olivia rambling on and on about how much she hates her life, so it seemed only fitting.


traitor– The Kiss of Deception

This song is not about kissing, by the way, lol, but it’s about how Olivia feels betrayed by the guy she used to date, how he didn’t cheat, but is still “a traitor”. So, I thought this title depicted that feeling in a convenient way. He deceived her.  


driver’s license- Since You’ve Been Gone

This one was so tricky! Nothing could capture the specificness of this title of the song, so I went for the theme behind it. The song is so raw and sad. I think since you’ve been gone was the only name that could fit and make a little bit of sense as it describes Olivia’s feelings after the guy left her.


1 step forward, 3 steps back– Ugly Love

The relationship Olivia describes in this song is super toxic! Like ugh, it’s just too ugly to be called love, hence the title of this book.


deja vu- Been There Done That

Deja vu is about Olivia singing how her ex is being the exactly same person to his new girlfriend that he was to Olivia, how they have the exact same kind of fun that Olivia used to have with him. And been there done that just sounds so accurate! ๐Ÿ˜Ž


good 4 u– This Savage Song

This is one of the most savage songs that I have ever heard, not just the lyrics but the way she is so vicious, the way she practically spits the words out, oh-so-savage! We are here for it, Olivia, you go, girl ๐Ÿคฉ. Guys, remind me never to break a Pisces’ heart because this sounds scary an–hold up…*realizes she’s Pisces too*.

๐Ÿ˜ถ

Um uh…this just got a litttttle inconvenient, so um, let’s move on.


enough for you– Always Never Yours

Despite the cute cover, the title makes a really sad name. This song is about how Olivia always tried to be enough for the guy she dated, but he never accepted her the way she was. So no matter how hard she tries, she never really managed to be his.


happier– Still Not Over You by Nicole Snow

This person is scary, holy cowwww~*runs*

Excuse me for not including the cover pic here, but that cover is straight up horrendous!! It shows this super manly guy with a buff naked chest and just…no ๐Ÿคฎ! If you’re interested, go search the book up and we can hate on the cover together ๐Ÿ™‚.

As for the book title, it fits perfectly! The song is about how Olivia wants her ex to be happy with his new girlfriend but not as happy as he was with her, because she still lurrrrves him.


jealousy, jealousy– Confessions of a Klutz

No, I am not calling Olivia a klutz. I used this title because it fits the sing so well! I dont know about the book but the song is all about your usual teenager who feels super insecure and jealous of all the pretty little kids with their perfect little lives. WHO ELSE RELATES?! ๐Ÿคง

I’m only kidding, I don’t relate…I guess ๐Ÿค”.


favorite crime– Once Upon a Broken Heart

I feel like more than half of the songs in this album are about heartbreak but for some reason this one relates to this particular book title a little more accurately than the others. While the other songs are more like different kinds of feelings after a breakup, like anger, jealousy, etc, this one just focuses on the heartbreak.


hope ur ok– I Wish You All The Best

I love how this song is a little more positive…not that positive ๐Ÿ™„, but a little. I like how Olivia earnestly misses the people she’s mentioned and how she hopes the best tor them. The title of this song perfectly manages to capture that!

So, that was all. Mind you, it was hard! I have no idea if these names look good enough but they are fine, I guess. I had fun, so that counts for something!!

Now, I want you to come up with a book title to replace Olivia’s album name- Sour. Comment it down below ๐Ÿ˜€.

Ps– To all Swifties out there, four amazing bloggers- Riddhi, Panna, Sep and Simran started a collab blog- Miss Americana and Us. It’s all about them gushing over Taylor Swift and writing poems based on her songs. Do check it out, you’ll love it!

Update: Just to clear any confusion, I haven’t read all the books in this list. I browsed my GoodReads to find book titles that fit the songs.

The Currently Reading Book Tag

Hey Pals!! Today, I am doing The Currently Reading Book Tag. I like this tag a lot, it’s fun and even has nice questions. I was kindaaa tagged for this by Naemi @ A Book Owl’s Corner. Don’t ask why I used kindaaa here, it’s an embarrassing tale ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™ƒ. So anyways, let’s do the tag!


1. How many books do you usually read at once?

Four to five usually because I just can’t stay committed to one book. There would always be other books asking for my attention and I gotta listen to my books because they always behave well with me. But sometimes, I read less when on a tight schedule. I’ll be reading three audiobooks, one physical book, one reread, etc etc ๐Ÿ˜œ.


2. If youโ€™re reading more than one book at a time, how do you decide when to switch to reading the other book?

I have no particular order. I just read whichever book I feel like in the mood for and whichever one is more close to me (here, I mean a book that is lying close to me, could be in any format). Many times, I focus on the book that I should finish within a particular time because of a deadline.


3. Do you ever switch bookmarks while youโ€™re part way through a book?

No, I don’t. I might’ve done that once maybe but not that I can remember.

These are some of the bookmarks I have made in the past few years.


4. Where do you keep the book(s) youโ€™re currently reading?

My physical reads can usually be found lying anywhere but my bookshelf and my e-books and audiobooks are in my phone ๐Ÿ“ฑ and laptop ๐Ÿ’ป.


5. What time of day do you spend the most time reading?

I have never really thought about that and it’s honestly really hard to say. I don’t know when I read the most because I don’t have a fixed time or schedule. Sometimes, I even read during my online classes ๐Ÿคจ. But I think I read more at any time in the day ๐ŸŒž than in the night ๐ŸŒŸ.


6. How long do you typically read for in one go?

Totally depends on my interest in the book and the amount of time I can spare without feeling guilty for not studying ๐Ÿค“ and the amount of time I can keep the fact that I am reading hidden from my father ๐Ÿคซ. Yeah, coz he knows I read way too much and scolds me from time to time ๐Ÿ˜ฌ.


7. Do you read hard covers with the dust jacket on or off?

Sometimes on, sometimes off. If I feel like the cover is irritating me or is being damaged I remove it. Otherwise not.


8. Which position do you mainly use to read?

If it’s an e-book or physical book, then I prefer to read with my back straight (though I forget and later find myself leaning back ๐Ÿ˜). I read audiobooks lying on my bed or while doing yoga or just sitting and doing… absolutely nothing!


9. Do you take the book youโ€™re currently reading with you everywhere you go?

Mostly yes. I usually take my phone ๐Ÿ“ฑ (which has most of the books I read) with me wherever I go, but not always.


10. How often do you update your progress in the book youโ€™re currently reading on Goodreads?

I don’t, usually. I just mark the book as finished once it’s done.


I Tag: Everyone who wants to do this tag. If you do this tag, let me know. I would love to read you answers ๐Ÿคฉ.

That’s all. I hope you enjoyed it. Let me know how many books you typically read at once, down in the comments.

Light me up

I was the butterfly that you trapped,
I was the hope that you shattered,
I was the light that could not be quenched,
I was the dream that always mattered.

But you broke me down,
And ripped out my heart.
Now with this burning rage,
I’ll tear you apart.

With hate as my servant,
Pain will thrive.
With misery as my weapon,
My wrath will come alive.

I’m the nightmare you never had,
I’m the darkness you never faced,
I’m the despair you never felt,
And I’m the agony that cannot be chased.

I’ll be the poison in your throat,
The water in your eyes,
I’ll be the blood in your wounds,
I’ll be your fear to survive.

So strike a match,
Light me on fire.
Watch me burn,
For it’s you that I come to devour.

~Nehal

Reacting to your ideal crushes ‘cuz I have loads of better things to do with my time but I’m just too lazy ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Hey Pals!! So, remember I asked embarrassed y’all into telling what your ideal crush would be like? Today, I’m gonna be reacting to them! For anyone who missed out the post but wants to comment can still do so, click the link here.

Note: This is in the order I received the comments. The italicized words show what the commenter has said, and the rest is mine.

That being said, let’s do this!!


Riya @ Hmmm…

I dont know/care about the looks… but should definitely have brown eyes.
And a crazy person with a sweet heart.

Well, glad to know the first comment turned out to be so…ahem, interesting ๐Ÿ™‚. Just kidding. I don’t mind that. I am just wondering what you mean by crazy here, because as far as I know, loads of people have loads of different definitions for this word. I mean, I think I’m crazy so…๐Ÿ˜.


Riddhi @ Whispering Stories

You know who my ideal crush is ๐Ÿ˜‰.

But still, hereโ€™s mine:
1. They should be moderately to highly pretty. Like I am sorry, but canโ€™t deal with male pattern baldness and stuff. Brown eyes are preferred over blue ones. If itโ€™s a guy, must be taller than me. And please, they must have a good dressing sense.
2. I prefer non-readers over readers, but I donโ€™t mind readers, if they pull me out the house. They must be funny, sarcastic, loyal and honest. And of course, they should be able to handle my moods and stuff, you know?

Yes, I do know your ideal crush is Kronos…um I mean, Kavinsky.

Now, that’s a my kind of a comment, gurl. Very relatable. Though I’m not one for eyes, but for some reason, the guy does need to be taller than me. And yes, non-readers! Non-readers would be so cool, I mean opposites attract after all.


Sam @ Diary of a Dreamer

1. I donโ€™t care about the clothes ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. Let them wear what they like! Apart from that, I guess tall, either spectacled or just good-looking without specs.

2. I like nerds! So definitely nerdy, the walking encyclopaedia kind ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. Mathematically gifted, clever sense of humour, wise, politically and spiritually awake and DEFINITELY miles away from boring! Okay with reader or non-reader.
One quirk I expect is, they should have an aversion to physical contact (coz I do ๐Ÿ˜…). They should love their personal space as much as I love mine.
I know, this is only about โ€œcrushesโ€, but it was still hard yet fun to think about!

I’m sorry for putting you through such a huge amount of thought process ๐Ÿ˜. I like your choice, by the way. Not many people say they want someone with brains, people go more for looks, so good going. But why the politically and spiritually awake? I’m just gonna assume that you are into religion. And wow, the aversion to physical contact is probably the best quirk I’ve received, I mean we are all over couples who can’t seem to leave each other alone… or are we ๐Ÿง?


Pooja Di @ Lifesfinewhine

My crush would have dark hair, green eyes, would wear jeans and shirts, would be kind of bad but with a good heart.

I appreciate the dressing sense of this guy. But wait a minute, why is this giving me Harry Potter vibes ๐Ÿ˜‚?

Sorry, I had to, I love this meme ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ–๐Ÿป.


Ashmita @ the fictional journal

I have no idea what my ideal crush would look like so I am gonna humor u and make up some shit ๐Ÿ™‚:

Here goes-
Tall. But not taller than the tallest person. ๐Ÿ
Wears fishnets and heels (sth is wrong with me ๐Ÿ˜‚).
Purple-blue curly hair ๐ŸŒ.
Has like tons of piercings and tattoos but makes the lamest jokes of the century ๐Ÿค“.
His fav colour is neon green ๐Ÿ.
Sacred of ants ๐Ÿœโ˜ ๏ธ.
Has a mean competitive streak. ๐Ÿค–
He thinks he plays the guitar. Stress on the word โ€œthinksโ€ ๐Ÿ‘ฝ.
And yes, I will take your word on it. Has 1.75 inches fangs. Yep, I measured that. ๐Ÿฆท
And he likes cannibalism. ๐Ÿ’ฉ

What a sublime crush I have. ๐Ÿค“ Ik. ๐Ÿ™‚ Have fun reacting. ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ™‚

Ahem, I um….ahem….

Omg, you’ve got to be kidding me! How could your ideal crush be everything I’ve ever wanted ๐Ÿ˜ญ?! My prince piercing, my knight in shining fishnets, the love of my ants and the cannibal of my heart. Oh, what would I not give for a tiny glimpse of those magnificent heels, and those enormous fags and those majestic tattoos. Oh, what would I not give to touch those delightful purple curls and cry over those fabulous jokes ๐Ÿ˜.

#thebestcrushcomment ๐Ÿ™‚


Riddhima @ Ahuja

Well, the most of all he should be hawtt and real romantic like I loveeeeeeee romantic gestures ๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿ˜, so yaa and of course Iโ€™ll not tell you all the DETAILS in a comment NEHAL JAIN! But ya, the above things I truly desire with all me heart ๐Ÿ‘€. And I quote, “it is something we have only seen in movies but please kaash wo movie sach hojayeโ€ ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿฅบ

And now we got some juicy stuff ๐Ÿคฃ. I can see Riddhima was bursting to tell more but was restraining herself. Like I said, we here still aren’t sure if we want personal space or romantic gestures, so I will let you decide ๐Ÿ˜. And not just movies dude, books have the best guys too!! But yes, great comment!


Riya @ Riya’s World

Here goes the embarrassment: My crush should be hot asf! I want him to look very manly, idk if that makes sense. Uk muscular body but not very big body, puppy hair, clean shaved, just a bit taller than me. His personality should be: he should know how to respect women. How to respect me, and everyone. I want him to understand me so I can have all the types of talks with him. I want him to have a sense of humour, be strong willed because I canโ€™t handle another crying Riya ๐Ÿ˜‚. And this is not my crush, this I what I want my future husband to be ๐Ÿ˜‚. Crack jokes ๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜.

He should have a charisma on me. His vibe should be different. When heโ€™s around me I should feel safe.

Uhhh this is so cringe. I never think about this stuff. I am just watch tvd (web series) and Damon (Ian somehalder) is my celeb crush. Iโ€™m describing him.

Damon Salvatore, huh ๐Ÿ˜?

Btw, can I just point out that our Riya here spelled ‘charisma’ as ‘Karishma’? I mean seriously, exactly how many Indian TV shows by Karishma Kapoor could your have watched to make such an error ๐Ÿคจ.

And to whoever Riya’s future husband will be, may the gods keep you in their blessings because boy does she have a lot of expectations!

I loved how she went all- he should be hot and I don’t care what anybody has to think about that. You go gurl ๐Ÿ˜Ž. Also, you want to feel safe around him, huh? Are you forgetting Damon was like the villain of the show in the first few episodes, and has even be described as bad for Elena by almost every single character in The Vampire Diaries? And you don’t get bad boys to respect you, Riya ๐Ÿ˜‚. They love you and would probably devour the entire mankind for you, but they don’t respect you, nuh-uh. But still, gotta say I’m impressed by your wishes.


Panna @ State Of Craze

Ok, my ideal type should have AWESOME, WONDERFUL, SMOOTH LIKE BUTTER, AMAZING, (all the synonyms of amazing) HAIR!!!!! Hair is super important! Like really really important. Doesnโ€™t matter if itโ€™s straight or curly. Or BLACK MESSY HAIR sounds amazing too. But it should be ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ‰. I donโ€™t really believe in โ€œopposites attractโ€ concept. So itโ€™s better if heโ€™s like me. Self-obsessed, dramatic, unpredictable, dry humour, selfish, โ€œmoneyโ€ oriented, a big goofball ๐Ÿ˜‚, wild, moody, naughty, a prankster, etc etc. He should read, listen and watch all my recommendations! Compulsory! He should prefer black clothes (like me) and eye color doesnโ€™t really matter. But I would like it better if itโ€™s to be black (like mine ๐Ÿ˜‚). He should be an Aquarian or Sagittarian. He should be good with mechanics (like uk, Leo๐Ÿ™ˆ) He should be good looking, and TALLER than me. Thatโ€™s it, I guess.

You guess?! You just pretty much gave all your unholy qualities to this nice guy and you saying that’s it? Oh, my poor baby ๐Ÿคง. It’s okay bacha (child), we’ll find someone for you, ignore our Panna here.

Okay, I’m done roasting you now ๐Ÿ™‚

Also dude, opposites attract is a true thing, I mean I believe in it, and it’s cool too, you can never get bored of the same thing, there’s always something new. And Leo, aah *sighs dramatically* AND YAY FOR BLACK MESSY HAIR, WE NEED THAT!! Also I just realized that we have the same eye color, so yay on that too!!


Rayna @ Ray’s Realm

HE MUST BE FUNNY. and smart. and loyal. He must definitely be sarcastic. and understand sarcasm. And dry humour. OH HE SHOULD BE A BOOKWORM. And like my โ€œrockโ€
and I donโ€™t care how he looks. Though Iโ€™d like warm brown eyes.
*retreats into the shadows waiting for you to say something about me being too young*

You are indeed too young to be thinking about such things, Rayndrop.

Happy ๐Ÿ™‚? You can come out of the shadows now.

But in all seriousness, this sounds like a very awesome guy. Simply described and yet so cool! I approve ๐Ÿ˜‡.


Sep @ Bookishly Yours

My ideal crush would be taller than me. And he needs to have jet black hair. He needs to have a passion for something, not necessarily books, but something. I do not care about eyes or eyelashes or stupid stuff like that. HE NEEDS A JAWLINE THO. He should understand my sarcasm, I mean, imagine if I was being sarcastic and he took it to be literal, that would be bad right? He needs to be humorous and kind and loyal. He also needs to respect females because Iโ€™m really big on that. He should be someone I can be myself around, you know? My complete wacky, crazy-loving self. Oh and he needs to know how to play the guitar. He should be unbothered with all my fictional crushes and he should know exactly what kind of romantic gestures I want by reading the books I love the most. For example, if he quoted me something from The Queenโ€™s Rise or Twilight or Kasie West or One of Us is Lying or To All The Boys I Loved before, I would be so happy. Scratch that, HE SHOULD READ THOSE TO QUOTE ME WITH BOOKISH CLICHE CUTE QUOTES.

Yes, this is what we want! Finally someone who cares about the jawline ๐Ÿ˜ญ. You just described the best guy that probably ever exists. Though I don’t want the guy to necessarily read the books I recommend or play the guitar, but I would love to know he’s passionate about something. But yeah, this was the most relatable comment… after the one by Ashmita, of course ๐Ÿ™‚.


Roshni @ It’s The Little Things

Well, my ideal crush should have deep ocean eyes, kinda thick/long eyebrows, dark kinda curly hair and HE SHOULD BE TALL, atleast taller than me. He should be funny, loyal, someone who understands me more than anyone else does, he should be honest to me and yeah, thatโ€™s all I want from a cRuSh.

Another simple one that sounds awesome! I approve ๐Ÿ˜‡.

Bad joke–

Why do I sound like a weird grandma who keeps telling the little kids which boy is best for them ๐Ÿค”? Never mind, forget I said that~


Christie and Claire @ I’m All Booked Up YA

Will Herondale is the ideal guy lol!

If only I had read The Infernal Devices ๐Ÿ˜ฉ.


Aanya @ The Sassy Slytherclaw

So he will have black eyes, midnight black, hair should be short but with a quiff, and should care about me a lot and be able to put up with my various mood swings and my obsession with reading books shouldnโ€™t matter to him, instead he should give me a shoulder to cry on when Iโ€™m sad AND he shouldnโ€™t be too arrogant, and should be able to tolerate my sarcasm, and basically Iโ€™ll be happy with whoever who is able to tolerate me IRL and still love me ๐Ÿ˜ but the perfect guy doesnโ€™t exist.

Hey, nobody is perfect. I’m sure perfect guys exist, you just haven’t found one. Though I must say I am not a fan of hair with a quiff, I’d rather settle for messy. But loyal, sarcastic and tolerable… Now that I think about it, your guy does sound too good to be true ๐Ÿค”.


Meg @ heyo, its meg

my ideal crush must be taller than me. like if they arent im sorry but no. they have to have an amazing sense of humor. not overly romanticโ€ฆ ig more like homies or something. definitely more bad than soft hearted. preferably a sagittarius or scorpio. hair is preferably brown, floppy, and a little bit wavy but not super. and honestly idc ab eye color.
also they should definitely play a sportโ€ฆ like soccer lacrosse or basketball.

Bad boy, huh, me likey ๐Ÿ˜

I loved how you were so condescending to the guys with short heights ๐Ÿคฃ. Hope you find your perfect baddie lacrosse player.


Hermione @ Book Review

So, my ideal crush must a bit taller than me, must have dark brown with a normal hairstyle not a weird looking one. The eye colour doesn’t matter that much. He must be a bit muscular but not like Hulk, should have interest in music (a guitarist ๐ŸŽธ would be perfect) and in science and space related stuffs. Any kind of quirks are alright. At last , must have a kind heart ๐Ÿ’œ.

This again, sounds very much like a wrap-up of what most people want in a perfect guy in this post. I like this guy, but I’m not sure about the good-in-science part because I am weirdly jealous of everyone who is good in science, not that I’m bad, but I don’t like it ๐Ÿคง.

Honorable mentions:

Thanks to the following people for their contribution to this post ๐Ÿ™‚:

Moi @ Definitely Moi ๐Ÿ™‚

Tiction @ Fictionally Crazy ๐Ÿ™‚

She was joking, obviously. But yeah, these guys are the best ๐Ÿ˜’.


That’s all I had for ya! I hope you enjoyed this post, we did have some fun now, didn’t we? Let me know what you thought of it down in the comments ๐Ÿ˜€.

My Favourite Song Lyrics

Hey Pals!! So, today I’ll be sharing some of my favourite song lyrics ๐Ÿ˜€.

Wow, what a long intro ๐Ÿ™‚.

Riddhi @ Whispering Stories did a post like this, and I really loved the idea, so here I am, doing it too, hehe. So, let’s get started.

Note: If the YouTube videos appear as links, view the post from the site. Also, most of these songs are quite popular (I don’t know why I thought to say this, but I did). And I’ll only be choosing one song by one artist.


1: Don’t Change by Why Don’t We

All I’m tryna say is don’t change
Every part of you is just right, don’t change,
Not a single curve or one line
So why cover up your flaws?
When they make you who you are,
All I’m tryna say is don’t change.

I love these lyrics, the perfect song for every girl!


2: No Judgment by Niall Horan

When you’re with me, no judgement,
You can get that from anyone else,
You don’t have to prove nothin’
You can just be yourself

This song is so sweet, these lines always touch my heart *insert puppy eyes emoji because my phone still does not support it*


3: Into The Unknown by Idina Menzel and Aurora

Every day’s a little harder
As I feel my power grow
Don’t you know there’s part of me
That longs to go
Into the unknown?

Omg, the goosebumps when she sings the fourth line!


4: Lovely by Khalid and Billie Eillish

Oh, I hope some day I’ll make it out of here
Even if it takes all night or a hundred years
Need a place to hide, but I can’t find one near
Wanna feel alive, outside I can’t fight my fear

Can I just say this hits hard? Like really really hard? It’s so relatable in some way! Plus the vibe and the high notes of this song don’t help to reduce the heart-wrench. It’s one of the songs that makes me so envious of the songwriter because I will never be able to write something this good!


5: Scared to be lonely by Dua Lipa and Martin Garrix

Is it just our bodies? Are we both losing our minds?
Is the only reason you’re holding me tonight
‘Cause we’re scared to be lonely?
Do we need somebody just to feel like we’re alright?
Is the only reason you’re holding me tonight
‘Cause we’re scared to be lonely?

I love this song so much, aah. The thriller vibes!


6: Just Hold On by Louis Tomlinson and Steve Aoki

The sun goes down and it comes back up
โ€ชThe world it turns no matter what
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh oh, if it all goes wrong
Darling, just hold on

This is definitely one of my favourite songs, it has helped me a lot. I think everyone should hear it on their bad days.


7: Fight Song by Rachel Platten

Honestly, I don’t even know what to highlight, this whole song is fab. But I’ll try:

And all those things I didn’t say
Wrecking balls inside my brain
I will scream them loud tonight
Can you hear my voice this time?

This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I’m alright song
My power’s turned on
Starting right now I’ll be strong
I’ll play my fight song
And I don’t really care if nobody else believes
‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me

…I might only have one match
But I can make an explosion.

Doesn’t it just give you such a Hermione Granger vibe?


8: Live While We’re Young by One Direction

Let’s go crazy, crazy, crazy ’til we see the sun
I know we only met, but let’s pretend it’s love
And never, never, never stop for anyone
Tonight, let’s get some
And live while we’re young.

We all love this song now, don’t we!? Always makes me want to jump up and down!


10: Maniac by Conan Gray

Tell all of your friends that I’m crazy and drive you mad,
That I’m such a stalker, a watcher, a psychopath.
Then tell them you hate me and dated me just for laughs,
So, why do you call me and tell me you want me back?
You maniac.

Don’t really need any words for this now, do I? It’s just so great ๐Ÿคฉ.


11: The Climb by Miley Cyrus

…I gotta keep trying
Gotta keep my head held high.

There’s always gonna be another mountain,
I’m always gonna wanna make it move,
Always gonna be an uphill battle,
Sometimes I’m gonna have to lose.
Ain’t about how fast I get there,
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side,
It’s the climb.

This is another very inspiring song that I absolutely love. Thanks to all these singers for writing such great songs *sniff sniff* ๐Ÿคง


12: traitor by Olivia Rodrigo

You betrayed me
And I know that you’ll never feel sorry,
For the way I hurt, yeah.
You’d talk to her
When we were together,
Loved you at your worst,
But that didn’t matter.

It took you two weeks
To go off and date her
Guess you didn’t cheat
But you’re still a traitor.

And that, dear kids, is the reason why you should never date ๐Ÿ˜‡.


13: The heart wants what it wants by Selena Gomez

This is a modern fairy tale
No happy endings
No wind in our sails
But I can’t imagine a life without
Breathless moments
Breaking me down, down, down, down

I really like the way Selena sings this part, it feels somewhat…magical. And it’s also really true, I don’t believe in happy endings either so ๐Ÿ˜‚.


If you’re wondering, One D, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan count as three separate artists… to me ๐Ÿ™‚. There are no Taylor Swift songs in here because I love her lyrics in almost all her songs, so I might just do another post like this, if this one is well received. Same goes for Why Don’t We, I’ve only used one of their songs.

So, that was all! Have you heard any of these songs? What are your thoughts on them? Let me know, down in the comments, one of your favourite song lyrics ๐Ÿ˜€.

Six Word Story #11

A month left…pre-boards arriving. Help!


Whose surprised that this is just as deep and thought-provoking as all my other six word stories ๐Ÿ™‚? Also, ‘pre-boards’ counts as one word, because of the hyphen.

Pooja di @ Lifesfinewhine asks her readers to leave their six word story replies, so taking inspiration by her, I’ll do that too ๐Ÿ˜.

I hope you liked the story! ๐Ÿ˜‚ And I hope you understand my very deep struggle! *wipes sweat from her brow* Let me know how you would respond to my story using six words.

Discussion Post: Book Titles That Make Great Band Names

Hey Pals! Today, I’m going to be talking about 7 book titles that I think would be great as song band names! Ashmita @ the fictional journal did a post recently where she talked about various characters that would dance on Taylor Swift’s songs. Plus I guess Jesse @ Jesse The Reader (who is an amazing Booktuber) did a tag where he talked about books as song and band names. So, inspired by both of them, I decided to see how well I would do with such a post. So, thanks for the inspiration. Without further ado, let’s get started!

Note: This is a discussion post so feel free to share your views down in the comments.


1: Skyhunter by Marie Lu

If you just add an ‘s’ after the title and make it Skyhunters, I think that would be a pretty cool name. Though it would seem kind of ethereal, it would be unique too.


2: The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

This one was used by Jesse too, and I really like the vibe of it. It somehow fits. I think this will make a popular boy band that will have deep, hard-hitting songs and a night-ish aesthetic.


3: The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

So, this one would be a little controversial because this would either be the most popular band or the least known out there…I mean, The Darkest Minds! What a name! It would definitely have songs featuring dark humor. We love that, don’t we? ๐Ÿ˜ƒ


4: What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera

This one miiight have been inspired by Why Don’t We because it’s kinda cool to have such a name, confuses the people who have never heard of the band before. Hey, I think Iโ€™m getting at this naming band thing!!


5: Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody

Oh god, this would be like that super cool band with swoon-worthy guys who are actually pretty sweet inside, or a band of badass girls like those of BlackPink….hm yeah, I’m definitely getting good at this ๐Ÿ˜Ž.


6: Loveless by Alice Oseman

This would make a great band name for both male and female bands. I think the band would have songs either like those of Billie Eillish, or ones that are like Brutal by Olivia Rodrigo, girls screaming their heads off ๐Ÿ˜†.


7: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

I saved the best one for last, because you have to accept the fact that no other book title surpasses all others in being a band name! Plus, it is Six of Crows guys, SIX OF CROWS!!!!


Man, this was harder than I thought, and I’m not exactly satisfied with the results ๐Ÿ˜•. But I hope you liked this post. My creativity cells were dead when I wrote it ๐Ÿ˜ต.

Anyways, that was all. I hope you liked it. Let me know a book title that you think would look cool as a band name ๐Ÿ˜€!

Moved on…

I look into the mirror
At the dark eyes of the girl who stares back,
The same girl who had cried herself to sleep last night,
The same girl whose brows had been furrowed the whole time,
The same girl who had felt rejected and dejected.

But now her eyes are shining,
They are glowing,
Radiating power and confidence,
The same eyes that had deflated yesterday,
At the thought of another day,
Are now aglow with mischief and anticipation,
Of the day ahead.

She had felt lonely yesterday,
But now,
Now she feels like she owns the world,
Just because she had allowed herself to believe in it.
Just because she had dared to see the good in it,
After having realized that seeing the bad wasn’t worth it.

Yes, yesterday had been hard,
Yes, yesterday had been cruel.
But I have moved on.
And today,
Today is in my hands.
And I am greeting it with open arms.

~Nehal


For all those who are having a bad day, just know that life is cruel. And you have every right to be sad, angry and hopeless. But also know, that there is always hope. And unless you let yourself have hope for a better day, unless you believe that things will get better, they never will. Your happiness is in your hands.

Anyone got any assumptions ๐Ÿค“? | 600 Follower Special |

Oh. My. Gawwwwd (that was my unsuccessful attempt at a Friends reference ๐Ÿ™‚).

Yes, I hit a freaking 600 followers! ๐Ÿคฉ

I am so so thankful to you guys for this accomplishment! I wouldn’t have been anywhere if not for so many loyal followers and friends I have made on WordPress, who show their constant support and love ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ˜ญโค๏ธ.

As a 600 follower special post, I decided to finally do an assumptions post. I had always wanted to do it but never did because I didn’t think anybody would be interested ๐Ÿ˜. But I hope I am wrong!

Anyway, we are doing it now! So drop whatever assumptions (if any) you have about me down in the comments, and I’ll make a post soon and answer all of them. I do hope you come up with some weird, interesting ones too, just to spice things up ๐Ÿ˜.

I hope that you participate in this and have fun. Can’t wait to read your assumptions about me ๐Ÿ˜€.

Ps– I might be a tiny little late in responding to comments. I’m not at home so I’ll respond probably late night or the next day.
